Liberating the digital world for a New Tomorrow

Welcome Note

Thank you visiting my website. We will be launching a new version soon!
I have dedicated my career to liberate innovation and the digital world (inc computing and telecoms) to become powerful allies that benefit economies, societies and our environment. This has required working with the public and private sectors to successfully pioneer, and contribute to global transformations such as IoT and Smart Cities. After waiting patiently, my leadership has naturally moved to Artificial Intelligence. Innovation eco-systems that drive large scale territorial transformation are another passion of mine, assisting nations, regions and businesses to build the right frameworks to mindfully advance into their digital-centric future.
My work has resulted in global, national and regional impact and I am widely respected across the world as a maven to enable digital and economic transformation. I am featured in whitepapers and e-books. Please read biography below for more information.
Since moving to the United States five years ago, whilst operating globally, I have also assisted national and regional change:-
  • Colorado Smart Cities Alliance. The US’ first state-wide, multi-jurisdictional and multi-stakeholder Smart City Innovation Ecosystem. Serving 5.5 million citizens; US’ largest Smart Region innovation eco-system;
  • Smart City Innovation Center to support state-wide jurisdictional and regional projects across Colorado. Launched September 2018 with some of the most prominent technology companies in the world. Featured in the press;
  • Built a new Smart City Global Practice for one of Colorado’s global tech businesses within 12 months. $100M revenue/pipeline;
  • National Artificial Intelligence and Super Computing Cluster for Smart Cities. Part of the NIST/NTIA/DHS Global City Team Challenge;
  • Launch of the Open Civic Foundation to drive a world first global standard for Smart Region. This herculean leap for societies provisions data-centric services for communities across a territory. Partnering with the global standards body – The Object Management Group, NIST and other standards organisations, public and private sectors. Fast tracking digital transformation for societies – home and abroad; 
  • Built the vision and blueprint for a new Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Supercomputing ecosystem traversing the United States. This will set the standard and power national and regional transformation of the US into AI-Centric futures. Next tranche of funding being raised to launch. Minority and Veteran owned business.
I invest much of my personal time in developing unique perspectives to successfully advance our digital future. After guiding and waiting patiently for technology and the digital world to attain a certain level of maturity, my next contribution is to advance our world view and create a winning partnership with Ethics, Data and Artificial Intelligence.
After years of planning, It is a delight to announce my book titled “ Inventing World 3.0 – Evolutionary Ethics for Artificial Intelligence™ ”. This world leading guide is a comprehensive and practical book explaining how humanity can advance into an ethical based future with Artificial Intelligence. It’s a pragmatic advancement of Darwin’s theory of evolution for organic and digital intelligences.
This is the playbook to guide government, regions and cities, businesses, organisations and innovators to advance into a winning partnership with Artificial Intelligence. This book enables humanity to make a quantum leap to shape its own destiny and that of an emerging digital intelligence. The result is the forging of a powerful partnership between humans and machines to progress our economies, society and our environment into a flourishing and evolutionary future – World 3.0 (the new Golden Age for humankind). Evolutionary Ethics for Artificial Intelligence™ are a world first and a new philosophy for humankind and Artificial Intelligence. You can purchase the book on many platforms in e-book and paperback formats. I recommend that you find out more about the book by clicking here.
Based on the book, I have announced AIEthics.World – advanced leadership in Artificial Intelligence to stimulate innovation and deployment of Artificial Intelligence at scale using Evolutionary Ethics for Artificial Intelligence ™.
